In Response To: Seven years of change *OT-discussion* (UrsusArctos)

: Ladies and gentlemen, it's been over half a decade since I even took a look
: at the HBO forums, much less posted in them. Today, out of whatever
: impulse, I decided to take a look back. And...well, things have changed.
: Destiny is due in a month's time, Halo 5 is on the way, Marty the Elder
: got fired (good grief!!!)...well, I wish I could call it interesting, if
: it were not so strangely surreal.

: I've changed too. Back in the day, I was quite the insufferable jerk and
: attention hog - and I owe Louis and Jilly very belated apologies for being
: such a nuisance. A seven-year exile is enough to change anyone, and I'm no
: longer the same person I was back when I was a teenager. My old obsessions
: are pretty much dead and gone, and when I look back I was plainly putting
: too great an emotional investment in trivial and petty things.

: That being said, I see some familiar names - Gravemind, Cody Miller, the
: incomparable Stephen Loftus and the ever-amazing Rockslider, still posting
: on these pages. It's great to see you still around.

: To the old guard - how has everyone fared with all the changes to the Halo
: franchise and to Bungie? Have things changed, and how do you see things
: having gone by all these years? My idea of asking this question is not to
: "stir the pot" or "stoke the flames" but to take a
: kind of retrospective look. My apologies to Louis Wu and to any other
: administrators still active if this topic is in any sense unacceptable,
: but after years of being active on an entirely different forum, my
: sensibilities have changed and I am no longer in tune with the sort of
: discussion that happens here, the discussion that I used to have earlier.

Welcome back! I recall your name but wasn't aware that you hadn't posted since Halo 3 days. I also don't recall you being a jerk, so don't dredge anything up unnecessarily and we've probably all forgotten anyway. Fresh start, huh? :)

There's less campaign discussion here of late so even though I still check in daily, I don't post as much as I used to. But, that said, I actually just posted something tonight that harkens back to the days of Halo 3, funny enough...
